I have an internal woman within me'

one must possess power 


- simply a "mental" power -


of self-mastery and of calm practiced in detachment


confirmed by inward simplification


and consolidated by the disidentifying contemplations


in order to furnish within oneself


a support for consciousness and self-awareness


when the "silence" is absolute


and sensations or images no longer present themselves
